    Riviera Beach

    Enjoy panoramic seaside views and super-soft sand

    Riviera Beach (Għajn Tuffieħa) is one of the most popular beaches in Malta due to its incredible views and crystal blue waters. It’s usually less crowded than many beaches around Malta as you can only reach it by climbing down a stairway of around 100 steps. It’s well worth the effort, though, for the soft brown-red sand and panoramic views.

    The beach is a fantastic combination of natural sights and manmade amenities – and you can rent sunbeds and umbrellas, as well as buy food and drinks at nearby kiosks.
